Florida County Takes Concrete Approach to Recycling

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The Citrus County, FL, Solid Waste Management Division will accept clean concrete from local builders and contractors, and turn it into an aggregate that could be used to maintain county roads. The plan, which has the blessing of the county commission, would charge builders and contractors no tipping fee for the clean material. However, a $90 fee would be charged, should there be any waste in the load other than concrete. The concrete would be stockpiled until it could be crushed by an outside contractor, and then used for road improvements at the landfill, as well as for use by by the county's road division for road projects elsewhere.
